Ted Lilly outpitched Barry Zito through six innings and Los Angeles beat error-prone San Francisco 9-1 on Monday night in the Dodgers' first home game since changing ownership last week.

Lilly (4-0) allowed a run and four hits, walked two and struck out six. It's the first time the 36-year-old two-time All-Star has won his first four decisions of a season in a big league career that began in 1999 with the Montreal Expos.

Dodgers first baseman James Loney, 2 for 28 with seven strikeouts against Zito, wasn't in the starting lineup on his 28th birthday. But he came in for defense in the eighth, replacing Juan Rivera with the Dodgers ahead 4-1, and made a brilliant diving stop of Hector Sanchez's grounder up the line before tossing to Josh Lindblom at the bag to strand runners at the corners.
